This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so.
These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play,
but might detract from the looks.
May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be
intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under
the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record.
(Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
Possible minor surface noise when played.
Additional Marks & Notes
If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially
if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record.
This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip,
cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Chilltown is a much tighter set than the J efforts, with vocal appearances by Def Squad associate Keith Murray, Talib Kweli and Redman among others. Tracks include "Wit' EE's", "Relen ...

The sharp Bomb Squad-spearhead soundtrack to Juice – standing the test of time very well over the years, thanks to the genuine dopeness of prime early 90s tracks by Cypress Hill, Brand New Heavies, Eric B & Rakim, EPMD and more! Some of the nicest includes Naughty By Nature's "Uptown ... LP, Vinyl record album
Black Milk beats and production that are hard-hitting and insistent at the core, with layers you'll still be hearing new elements in after a dozen listens – which is to say, typically brilliant Black Milk. Includes "Sound Check", "Wake Up", "Loosie", "Zap&qu ... LP, Vinyl record album
Genius from the mind of Kool Keith aka Big Willie Smith aka Poppa Large aka Dr. Octagon.

More electro than hip hop – especially when you listen to raps like "Same Day Service", which has Duke essentially reading a "same day service" sign at a photo lab over and over! Still, the production is pretty tasty – and many tracks feature additional help from ... LP, Vinyl record album
At this point LL was definitely going for radio play, and it worked, with a tight pop formula and lots of very catchy tracks. Still, commercial crossover in '89 was a little different story and there's more than a handful of great tracks here, with LL in true form on "I'm That Type of ... LP, Vinyl record album
